Maternity photos in stuart | Miriam and Michael
It's an honor when a client returns to me for more photos. And this time, Miriam had reached out to me after I had photographed her engagement session as well as her wedding to tell me that she was expecting soon and wanted to have maternity photos done at the park. I immediately jumped on the opportunity to work with her and Michael again.
Accompanying them on the session was their pup Zephyr! He is a trained service dog and he proudly posed for a portrait when I asked "Are you ready for a sibling?!" I love when clients incorporate their pets at their session. One tip I always give is to bring an extra set of hands aka a best friend (or in this case, Miriam's brother!), with them to the session to be the doggie wrangler. More times then not, pooches can only last so long before they just want to lay down and rest :)
I'm so happy with the photos that we got and I am excited to share some of my favorite with you! Congratulations again to Michael and Miriam who will be expecting their baby girl in early September 2018!
Hobe Sound, FL Maternity Session
I seem to never grow tired of photographing maternity sessions. They are some of my favorite sessions. One of the things that I am particularly fond of is photographing first time mommies. The anticipation and joy that they have for what is to come is so refreshing. And, it brings me back to when I carried Easton and how I felt prior to his arrival. The best advice I can give to expectant first time mommies is to get enough rest and also enjoy the last few months of it just being you and your husband.
I was so happy to photograph Shelby and Brian's maternity session at Hobe Sound Nature Center this past week. We had a wonderful session and perfect weather! I expected there to be mosquitos and humidity, but thankfully, none of that was apparent. Both Shelby and Brian are a dream and their baby girl is expected to be here in early Sept 2018, what a lucky girl to have such amazing parents!
Here are some of my favorite images from our time together!
UPDATE: Shelby and Brian had their baby girl..Click here to see their newborn photos!
And here is their video slideshow!
So pleased with this maternity session at House of Refuge! Click the link to view the photos!
It was a beautiful afternoon to photograph senior portraits!
After a couple of scheduling conflicts, we finally got to get together for Peyton's senior photos! I was so excited to photograph Peyton again! We had previously met at a shoot that I did for All For Color/Sloan Ranger. And, we actually go to the same church! Small world!
Peyton is a senior at Community Christian Academy and she works at Chick Fil A, one of my favorite places!! She's got a super sweet personality and a gorgeous smile! Doesn't she look like Drew Barrymore?! Anyways, here are a few of my favorite photos from our session!!
First time I have ever photographed a HORSE on location! I just loved my senior session with Alaina...and George! Our senior session took place at the Rider's Edge Equestrian Center in Palm City. I arrived early in the morning and was hoping that the rain would hold off. Thankfully, it was sunny for us the whole time!
Alaina is a senior at Jensen Beach High School and has been riding for about ten years. George has become one of the best parts of her day. He's as gentle as a puppy and even lets her give him kisses on the nose! Alaina, I had so much fun at our session! Thank you for allowing me to capture you in your element!
I was so excited to get to have another high school senior in front of my camera this week! Meet Brandon! He is a senior at Community Christian Academy and aspires to go into film!! Our session was fun because he understood the importance of shooting in good light. And good light is just what we had! Thankfully the sun was out and gave us the lighting that I just love to shoot in!
Here are a couple of my fave's from our session, enjoy!
Coral Cove Beach, Jupiter FL
It's not every day that I get to photograph a model! For real, Jett was actually a model for H+M! I had a blast shooting, and editing!! His Mom contacted me a few weeks ago and wanted to set up a session. They live in Wellington, so we actually decided we would meet up in Jupiter, sort of a half way mark. Coral Cove Beach. Ahh, it's been such a long time since I shot there! Fun fact: I shot my very FIRST family session at this beach back in 2005. It was nice to go back and it definitely makes me want schedule more sessions there!
I definitely photograph more senior girls than I do senior boys. But it's always a nice change to photograph a senior boy. Posing them is completely different than posing a girl! And for some reason or another, the boys just fall right into their pose naturally. I didn't have to give Jett much direction. With his background in modeling, all I had to do was shoot! :) Here are a few favorites!
I was so happy when Katie contacted me and wanted me to photograph her! She and I had met a few weeks back at the shoot that I did for All For Color, Prep Obsessed and Sloane Ranger. Katie was one of the seniors who participated in the shoot.
Katie is amazing, she goes to Martin County Highschool, class of 2018 and during the summer is working full-time with toddlers at a school. I know how challenging it can be to raise a baby, and this girl is with kids allllll day long. Bless her! :) She loves what she does though! AND, she has her OWN business making monograms! Busy lady! For a high school senior, she sure does knock me out of the water!
I had so much fun photographing Katie at Indian Riverside Park. Her smile says it all; she is a bubbly, outgoing girl! And those blue eyes just POP in these images, don't you think?!
I've never been more excited to shoot newborns than I am now! Ever since I had a baby, I see newborn photography in a whole new way. The preciousness of life that you hold in your arms is something that stays with you and gives you a greater depth of appreciation for.
Baby Logan is two weeks old, isn't he just adorable?! His mama and daddy are doing such a wonderful job with him!
House of Refuge
Not only did I get the honor of photographing their engagement photos and wedding, I am now photographing their maternity session! I am overjoyed for my Monica and Ryan! They are due to welcome their baby girl this summer! It will be their first baby and I am so excited for them!
I talk to Monica all the time about my experience with pregnancy, delivery, and having a little baby, it's so fun to be going through this season of life with a friend! (I've known Monica since 7th grade!)
Ryan and Monica's session was taken at The House of Refuge in Stuart. Monica wore some amazing outfits. My favorite was the cream colored off the shoulder long sleeved maxi dress, she looked so stunning in it!!
These two are going to be wonderful parents and they will no doubt have a beautiful baby (I can't wait to see her!) Thank you to Monica and Ryan for giving me the privilege of documenting such a beautiful time in their marriage! :)

Love, love, love photographing seniors! Meet Justin! He was referred to me by the mother of this senior, and that senior (Thanks, Frances!!). Justin is in the graduating class of 2017 at Jensen Beach High School...he is such a photographic young man with a super sweet spirit. He plans on going to FSU for dentistry school!
The afternoon light was butter. So beautiful. And it was SO good for me to get out of the house and get some late afternoon salt air in my lungs. It's amazing how refreshing being by the water is. I literally could do shoots like this one every day of the week, I love it that much!!
Justin, thanks so much for the fun session! You're going to make an awesome dentist! Best of luck in college!!!
Hobe Sound, Fl
Last week I woke up before the sunrise to get myself ready to meet Baylee, a senior at Jensen Beach High School. She has been friends with Julia, featured here, and wanted to have her session at the same location; Hobe Sound Nature Center. Of course, I was excited, it's such a beautiful place for portraits, especially at sunrise.
I think Baylee might have had a few laughs at me as I attempted to squat down into poses with my 8 month pregnant belly while carrying my reflector and camera :) It's ok, I laughed at myself! Finally I came to the realization that it would be better if I talked her through the poses rather than try to show her!
Either way, her portraits came out gorgeous and she rocked it out! Here are some of my favorites! Enjoy!

Hobe Sound, FL
It was one of the coolest mornings that we have had all fall season, here in South Florida. As a Floridian, any drop in temperature below 77 degrees is considered cold :) The good thing: it was a perfect time for photos.
Julia met me early in the morning for a sunrise photo session. I've shot so many times during the late evening golden hour and have loved the results. But there is just something different when shooting at sunrise that I love. We lucked out with a perfect ratio of sun/clouds, where the clouds were just enough to filter the golden light of the day.
Julia is a senior at Jensen Beach High School and will be graduating in 2017. After she graduates she would love to go to UCF where she plans on pursuing a degree in nursing. I can already tell just by my short interaction with her that she will make an excellent nurse. She's got a very calming a sweet spirit :) She could also make a career at modeling--she's gorgeous!!
Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot!
Interested in a senior session?
If you saw yesterday's blog post, you might be thinking, "Why is she posting this again?" Well, that's not exactly the case. Yesterday's post was about Allison. Today, meet Natalie! Yep, twins! Natalie and Allison had their session at the same time. It's ok, I got them confused many times. But now, I finally know who is who! :) Like Allison, Natalie was also featured in this post with the clothing line All For Color.
I love these images of Natalie, she is so sweet! We got some great shots, here are some of my favorites! :) So happy to have the privilege of working with both of these super sweet girls! Love them!
